From what I see none of the popular exhausts will fit. The only two that have a shot in my eyes are the Trubendz rear can style or the vibrant maybe. The rest dont have a snowball's chance in hell. Plus you'll need a grinder as shown in my other thread about exhaust.hrm sweet, would the Magnaflow catback work without any problems on the 2.3l?Or should I wait for the FS Exhaust? Thanks
From my personal experiance (VW's) 2.5" on a small engined NA car is too big in all but high RPM race situations where you dont need the torque as much.Until I can get a complete 2.5" catback.
...2.25" is ideal, but not because of the back-pressure...Back-pressure is bad, no matter the situation...Back-pressure does in no way create torque...Velocity is what creates torque/power...2.25" should be more than adaquate. It will flow quickly, and have enough back pressure to create some torque.
why waste your $$$? If you are that desperate to do an exhaust mod, do what others have done, cut off that big heavy rear resonator and have someone put in new pipe for $40.ohh, cause ill probably put on of those cheap exhaust from ebay, while ill wait for Real cat-back's exhaust to come out, peace
